How about a historical outing in the Pays de Longwy, to take a leapback tothe 17thcentury and discover the traces left by the war? If you are tempted by the experience, treat yourself to a guided tour of Vauban’s fortifications in Longwy. The Pays de Longwy Tourist Office has concocted a fascinating walk.
On your own, as a couple or with your family, take a trip back in time. For 1h30 to 1h45, your guide will take you on a tour of the bastioned fortifications designed by Vauban, whose military engineering was a real support for Louis XIV. As one of the 9 cities built “ex nihilo”, i.e. from scratch, Longwy is a true representation of the engineer’s ideal city.
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008, the Place Fortede Longwy includes a sophisticated defense system. During the guided tour, you will explore an exceptional cross-shaped underground, a powder magazine, but also many historical monuments of the city,such as the Porte de France and its half-moon, the Place d’Armes, the Siege Well and the military bakery. Each step of the walk will provide you with new discoveries,which will be a real treat.
